The tour was excellent, very informative, not rushed. A proper look behind the scenes of a working hospital.

The vets and nurses here specialise in looking after hunting birds. They treat thousands every year from mundane things like trimming claws to rebuilding wings. Falconry is one of the most popular sports indulged in by Emeratees as illustrated by the huge values quoted for top birds.

While having visitors to our home in Abu Dhabi we added the Abu Dhabi Falcon Hospital to our list of things to do. Though the facility was somewhat hard to find it was well worth the trip. Very interesting and the staff was great in answering questions and providing historical information. Best of all, actually having a Falcon perch on... More

Where else in the world can you hold a real live falcon! This place was great and great time for the kids as well. I will be back to visit again.

Well worth a visit..........dont expect a 'show'.......its more a close up every day life of a falcon experience. Its different and... More

Amazing. The largest in the world and extremely professional. Make a reservation, for a small group. Relax, the tour is intimate and personal. Stay for an excellent private lunch. My entire family has not stopped talking about it.

The price per person is about 140 AED, somebody told it's not cheap, but you really should go there! There will be like an excursion where you can not only see any procedures, but also to feed and to have foto with falcon))

We found out about this from a couple staying at our hotel who recommended it to us, so on our next time passing through the UAE we organised a tour through the concierge. You can opt to have hotel pickups, however we caught a taxi there to meet the tour. If going by taxi i would suggest bringing a map... More

The price is 170 dirham. That is approximately $46.00. For that you get about a 90 minute visit. It starts with an overview of the hospital and a bit of info on the two types of falcons there. You get a glass of juice while you listen. Then it's on to the room where you see a tech put a... More

It is a little hard to find and a little expensive, but definitely worth it. Be sure to call well ahead to reserve a spot. Water & toilets are available, but no food.
